let’s say you’re a musician

let’s say you’re a musician
It was Archimedes who said, “Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and single-handed, I can move the world.” And Sir Isaac Newton famously said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants”. https://www.kisstoy.com/

Used mostly in finance to express the relationship between debt and equity, the principle of leverage can be exploited in all spheres of life. Using a layman’s language, I describe leverage is a tiny tweak you can exploit or a simple action you can take wherever you are in your artistic endeavour to maximize your impact and result. For an example, let’s say you’re a musician, an author, or a craftsman, you can produce a one-minute video and upload to YouTube, Vimeo, or Invideo, and if properly optimized, your video could go viral. With that tiny tweak to your strategy or that simple action, you could attract thousands if not millions of viewers in one fell swoop. BAAM! You’ve moved from a virtual unknown to a celebrity. So this is the question I want to ask you, When last did you promote yourself and your work? The saddest mistake experts, authors, coaches, consultants, professionals, and indies (independent producers) of all hues make is to toil in the dark or total obscurity hoping that by a dint of their hard-work they’ll somehow be known. Or put it another way, that what they produce, whether songs, paintings, books, crafts, and the like, will somehow magically make people to discover or find them. Let me put it bluntly to you, as a producer, your chances of being discovered that way in today’s noisy and clutter-filled world are one in a million. Gone are the days people will beat a path to your door if you made a better mousetrap. There are hundreds if not thousands of other producers making mousetraps that could outshine yours so your product alone is not enough. In a globalized and internet enabled world that’s the reality. You must tell the world your story or you’ll remain in obscurity. So as an artist, song writer, author, speaker, coach, consultant, craftsman or an indie of whatever hue, you must promote your good works for a sliver of chance to be heard or found out. Personal promotion is your simplest leverage. Big companies with deep pockets can afford adverts but it’s very likely you’re operating on a shoestring budget. So to beat the odds, start to self-promote yourself. If you’ve written a book, let people know you’re a proud published author. If your book has hit the New York Times best-seller list, jump to the roof top and let the world know. If you’re in the process of writing your first book, let the world know your book is due out in six, nine months, or whatever time frame you envisage. If your team has designed an app, let people know you were part of the team that designed that cool app or software that is making waves in Apps or Play Store. Tut your horn, as the Chinese say. Blowing your horn is a powerful leverage that creative artists of all genres strapped for cash can use to be found in a world awash with noise. The title of one of Tom Peters’ books is, “You Can’t Shrink to Greatness.” Seth Godin’s advice to independent producers is, “Don’t wait to be picked up, pick yourself up.” Seth Godin also advises that all producers desirous of being taken seriously must strive to be “a purple cow”. By that, he means you must stand out. In a sea of sameness, only “a purple cow” stands out. You can’t afford to be average because you’re competing with the whole world where “the average” is consigned to the dust heap. Get the word out; don’t smile in the dark. Promote yourself as if your life depended on it because it does. Create links to the amazing things you’re doing or have done, and share the links to all your contacts in all the over one hundred social media platforms out there, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Reddit, WeChat, Telegram, and many others. Let everybody know you’re a proud author of your book, or the writer of that song, or the artwork displayed in a particular gallery. One of the easiest or simplest ways to maximize your leverage as I’ve alluded earlier, is to write a book. Nothing else compares. Your book can get to The White House, Buckingham Palace, and The Kremlin, which ordinarily, you may not – until you become a celebrity. So don’t rest on your laurels until you’ve written a book or two. You can even write articles and upload them to online article aggregators like Ezine Articles and later compile all your repurposed articles into a book. If you hate writing and believe that writing a book is out of your reach, that’s nothing to worry about. There are ways of getting published without lifting a finger using a ghost writer. You can even get help from world-renowned copy-writers like Katie Parrot, and/or Sonia Thompson if you know how to reach out to them. Just get your book’s outline ready and you’re done. As the saying goes, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Promise yourself you’ll not rest until your book is out – this year. According to popular authors who have written at least four best-selling books each, including Ryan Holiday, and Chandler Bolt, you can write a book worth reading in 90 days. I’ve tried it and it works, once you know how to use tools like mind-maps. If you want to promote yourself with video (it’s the most popular way to self-promote), do not try to go overboard by gunning to create high-definition videos. It’s not necessary, at least in the beginning. You can use your smart phone to produce a simple video. If that is too hard, you can get a graphic designer to design stunning covers for your book, or eBook, or song cover, and upload them to free video making sites like Animoto, Issuu or Invideo, and before you know it, you have a video people can link to. You can even upload your video to your one-page website. You can get a web designer on Fiverr to design a great-looking site for you for pennies. Or you can design your website by yourself on Weebly if you’re the tech-type. In summary, exploit the principle of leverage, particularly self-promotion, to catapult yourself to the next level until you reach the proverbial tipping point and the world will beat a path to you.

RULE OF LARGE NUMBERS

I would argue that the same way maximums were set in item #B above, a geographically mapped system to avoid over-charges could be applied. What constitutes an overcharge http://truecoverage.com is again decided by committee at Federal RE in much the same way that pharmaceuticals are banned when costs are unreasonable to both the insurers and the government. Because 100% of the American population is insured with Basic (unless they foolishly “opt out”) the CUSTOMER is now the dual processors of Federal RE and the private insurance company involved in each case. If cost controls are unreasonable by today’s standards to any given clinic, the quality of health care will suffer tremendously when the operating units do not get to charge whatever they want, or whatever they used to feel an insurer will pay. But when medical organizations get 100% continuity in payments through a single-payer style system with few errant delays in the simplified processing, they will actually make far more money than they do now in the world of constant claim disputes, and zero consistency. The monitoring committee, as with the prescription committees, are comprised of qualified professionals at Federal RE who understand the true economics of a hospital or clinic. Severe overcharges that are way beyond scale cannot and will not be honored. Plenty of money will still be spent for procedures (especially at the onset when the system is brand new) but the whole key to controlling price is actually not price controls as the system matures…but rather the lower cost of running a hospital and clinic when the payments are made for services with lightening speed. That’s right..there is no reason to hold up funds under the new program once the services are provided. Medical billing will be a snap, and the incredible amounts of money spent on corrective systems can be lessened for each institution. Speed of payment to medical facilities is a major factor for overall success. So is having a fairly large and very intimate accounting system to track abuses. Frequent audits will replace much of the former aggravation of charging insurance companies, and will be a much more regular event at hospitals. A strong governmental role in auditing each facility regularly is actually a pillar of this plan, and will be gone in to more detail in later articles as to who and how this occurs, and how frequently.

The American dream is still a wonderful thing. We do not have to take away the profit motive from professionals who seek their fortune through honorable health industries, medical jobs, and insurance work. We simply need to define the rules of a new system that uses the age old insurance RULE OF LARGE NUMBERS to create a national group. The same talent required to be a preferred doctor, dentist, or insurance provider still exists in a more comprehensive form. State programs and the endless bureaucracy that encompasses them are eliminated and replaced by the new system. Welfare mothers and low-income households are fully sponsored for the coverage they really need, and the investments of Federal RE: over long period of time pay for most of the built-in deficiency. Hospitals, clinics, insurers, and drug companies all have to compete on the basis of quality and product provided instead of what HMO or PPO they belong to, or what “level of care” is minimally chosen. You will find that in practice it is an absolute fact that Federal RE will actually show a small profit when the smoke clears away, and medical care will improve through TRUE COMPETITION, not the bureaucratic version of it most of us suffer with today.

The gradual decline in the financial value of property

The gradual decline in the financial value of property
used to produce income due to its increasing
age and eventual obsolescence, which is measured by a formula that takes into account these https://safecertawards.com/

factors in addition to the cost of the property and its estimated useful life. Depreciation is a concept used in accounting to measure the decline in an asset’s value spread over the asset’s economic life. Depreciation allows for future investment that is required to replace used-up assets. In addition, the U.S. INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE allows a reasonable deduction for depreciation as a business expense in determining taxable net income. This deduction is used only for property that generates income. For example, a building used for rent income can be depreciated, but a building used as a residence cannot be depreciated. Depreciation arises from a strong public policy in favor of investment. Income-producing assets such as machines, trucks, tools, and structures have a limited useful life—that is, they wear out and grow obsolete while generating income. In effect, a taxpayer using such assets in business is gradually selling those assets. To encourage continued investment, part of the gross income should be seen as a return on a capital expenditure, and not as profit. Accordingly, tax law has developed to separate the return of capital amounts from net income. Generally, depreciation covers deterioration from use, age, and exposure to the elements. An asset likely to become obsolete, such as a computer system, https://finansrapport.se/ can also be depreciated. An asset that is damaged or destroyed by fire, accident, or disaster cannot be depreciated. An asset that is used in one year cannot be depreciated; instead, the loss on such an asset may be written off as a business expense. Several methods are used for depreciating income-producing business assets. The most common and simplest is the straight-line method. Straight-line depreciation is figured by first taking the original cost of an asset and subtracting the estimated value of the asset at the end of its useful life, to arrive at the depreciable basis. Then, to determine the annual depreciation for the asset, the depreciable basis is divided by the estimated life span of the asset. For example, if a manufacturing machine costs $1,200 and is expected to be worth $200 at the end of its useful life, its depreciable basis is $1,000. If the useful life span of the machine is 10 years, the depreciation each year is $100 ($1,000 divided by 10 years). Thus, $100 can be deducted from the business’s taxable net income each year for 10 years. Accelerated depreciation provides a larger tax write-off for the early years of an asset. Various methods are used to accelerate depreciation. One method, called declining-balance depreciation, is calculated by deducting a percentage up to two times higher than that recognized by the straight-line method, and applying that percentage to the undepreciated balance at the start of each tax period. For the manufacturing machine example, the business could deduct up to $200 (20 percent of $1,000) in the first year, $160 (20 percent of the balance, $800) the second year, and so on. As soon as the amount of depreciation under the declining-balance method would be less than that under the straight-line method (in our example, $100), the straight-line method is used to finish depreciating the asset. Another method of accelerating depreciation is the sum-of-the-years method. This is calculated by multiplying an asset’s depreciable basis by a particular fraction. The fraction used to determine the deductible amount is figured by adding the number of years of the asset’s useful life. For example, for a 10-year useful life span, one would add 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10, to arrive at 55. This is the denominator of the fraction. The numerator is the actual number of useful years for the machine, 10. The fraction is thus 10/55. This fraction is multiplied by the depreciable basis ($1,000) to arrive at the depreciation deduction for the first year. For the second year, the fraction 9/55 is multiplied against the depreciable basis, and so on until the end of the asset’s useful life. Sum-of-years is a more gradual form of accelerated depreciation than declining-balance depreciation. Depreciation is allowed by the government as a reward to those investing in business. In 1981, the Accelerated Cost Recovery System (ACRS) (I.R.C. § 168) was authorized by Congress for use as a tax accounting method to recover capital costs for most tangible depreciable property. ACRS uses accelerated methods applied over predetermined recovery periods shorter than, and unrelated to, the useful life of assets. ACRS covers depreciation for most depreciable property, and more quickly than prior law permitted. Not all property has a predetermined rate of depreciation under ACRS.

One of the easiest or simplest ways to maximize your leverage as I’ve alluded earlier, is to write a book. Nothing else compares. Your book can get to The White House, Buckingham Palace, and The Kremlin, which ordinarily, you may not – until you become a celebrity. So don’t rest on your laurels until you’ve written a book or two. You can even write articles and upload them to online article aggregators like Ezine Articles and later compile all your repurposed articles into a book. If you hate writing and believe that writing a book is out of your reach, that’s nothing to worry about. There are ways of getting published without lifting a finger using a ghost writer. You can even get help from world-renowned copy-writers like Katie Parrot, and/or Sonia Thompson if you know how to reach out to them. Just get your book’s outline ready and you’re done. As the saying goes, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Promise yourself you’ll not rest until your book is out – this year. According to popular authors who have written at least four best-selling books each, including Ryan Holiday, and Chandler Bolt, you can write a book worth reading in 90 days. I’ve tried it and it works, once you know how to use tools like mind-maps. If you want to promote yourself with video (it’s the most popular way to self-promote), do not try to go overboard by gunning to create high-definition videos. It’s not necessary, at least in the beginning. You can use your smart phone to produce a simple video. If that is too hard, you can get a graphic designer to design stunning covers for your book, or eBook, or song cover, and upload them to free video making sites like Animoto, Issuu or Invideo, and before you know it, you have a video people can link to. You can even upload your video to your one-page website. You can get a web designer on Fiverr to design a great-looking site for you for pennies. Or you can design your website by yourself on Weebly if you’re the tech-type. In summary, exploit the principle of leverage, particularly self-promotion, to catapult yourself to the next level until you reach the proverbial tipping point and the world will beat a path to you.

Used mostly in finance to express the relationship

Used mostly in finance to express the relationship
It was Archimedes who said, “Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and single-handed, I can move the world.” And Sir Isaac Newton famously said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants”. https://qsmart.qa

Used mostly in finance to express the relationship between debt and equity, the principle of leverage can be exploited in all spheres of life. Using a layman’s language, I describe leverage is a tiny tweak you can exploit or a simple action you can take wherever you are in your artistic endeavour to maximize your impact and result. For an example, let’s say you’re a musician, an author, or a craftsman, you can produce a one-minute video and upload to YouTube, Vimeo, or Invideo, and if properly optimized, your video could go viral. With that tiny tweak to your strategy or that simple action, you could attract thousands if not millions of viewers in one fell swoop. BAAM! You’ve moved from a virtual unknown to a celebrity. So this is the question I want to ask you, When last did you promote yourself and your work? The saddest mistake experts, authors, coaches, consultants, professionals, and indies (independent producers) of all hues make is to toil in the dark or total obscurity hoping that by a dint of their hard-work they’ll somehow be known. Or put it another way, that what they produce, whether songs, paintings, books, crafts, and the like, will somehow magically make people to discover or find them. Let me put it bluntly to you, as a producer, your chances of being discovered that way in today’s noisy and clutter-filled world are one in a million. Gone are the days people will beat a path to your door if you made a better mousetrap. There are hundreds if not thousands of other producers making mousetraps that could outshine yours so your product alone is not enough. In a globalized and internet enabled world that’s the reality. You must tell the world your story or you’ll remain in obscurity. So as an artist, song writer, author, speaker, coach, consultant, craftsman or an indie of whatever hue, you must promote your good works for a sliver of chance to be heard or found out. Personal promotion is your simplest leverage. Big companies with deep pockets can afford adverts but it’s very likely you’re operating on a shoestring budget. So to beat the odds, start to self-promote yourself. If you’ve written a book, let people know you’re a proud published author. If your book has hit the New York Times best-seller list, jump to the roof top and let the world know. If you’re in the process of writing your first book, let the world know your book is due out in six, nine months, or whatever time frame you envisage. If your team has designed an app, let people know you were part of the team that designed that cool app or software that is making waves in Apps or Play Store. Tut your horn, as the Chinese say. Blowing your horn is a powerful leverage that creative artists of all genres strapped for cash can use to be found in a world awash with noise. The title of one of Tom Peters’ books is, “You Can’t Shrink to Greatness.” Seth Godin’s advice to independent producers is, “Don’t wait to be picked up, pick yourself up.” Seth Godin also advises that all producers desirous of being taken seriously must strive to be “a purple cow”. By that, he means you must stand out. In a sea of sameness, only “a purple cow” stands out. You can’t afford to be average because you’re competing with the whole world where “the average” is consigned to the dust heap. Get the word out; don’t smile in the dark. Promote yourself as if your life depended on it because it does. Create links to the amazing things you’re doing or have done, and share the links to all your contacts in all the over one hundred social media platforms out there, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Reddit, WeChat, Telegram, and many others.

The laser comb is based on photo therapy principals

The laser comb is based on photo therapy principals that have been around since the early 20th century. It is a battery powered hair comb (or brush) that uses low level https://thelaserhut.com/ or cold laser light therapy to stimulate healthy hair growth. The hand held laser device operates under the same principal as laser hair therapy; in fact, it is basically a hand held version of what you might find at your local hair transplant clinic. In a clinical setting it is used to get the scalp healthy and ready to receive the transplants, and to stimulate new hair growth after transplantation. The light emitted by this laser is safe and is in compliance with the laser product standards outlined by the U.S. government. LLLT (low level light therapy) has been used in Europe for over 30 years as an alternative to hair transplant surgery and hair loss medications. Using a laser comb is the safest and simplest way to thick healthy hair.

Hair Re-growth With a Laser Comb

Just as sunlight can heal and aid living cells, laser light can stimulate hair growth. The low level laser light increases the blood supply to hair follicles. It uses cold lasers to revitalize your hairline and anywhere your hair is thinning. Your scalp will also become healthier, as the beneficial effects of using this device can lead to a reduction in dandruff and scalp irritation. The laser comb improves hair condition as well as increasing the fullness of your hair naturally.

A Laser Comb is Safe

The best part about these combs is that it’s an in-home hair loss treatment. This new comb is non-harmful, painless, and does not emit heat. Laser hair therapy works by increasing blood flow to the scalp. It emits a low level laser light that stimulates the cells in your hair follicles. Just as plants respond to light, which helps them to grow and thrive, your hair will respond to the laser’s phototherapy by growing stronger, thicker, fuller, and healthier in as little as six to 12 weeks.
